  • The first Raman spectrometer made specifically for hyphenated techniques.
  • Open architecture allows custom coupling to almost any equipment in any position.
  • Coupling with iXR eliminates the need for multiple measurements and assumptions; gets answers faster
    • One measurement provides answers from multiple techniques all taken at the same time and in the same conditions
    • Learn about your samples physical, chemical and structural characteristics and how they affect one another from one measurement.
  • Research laboratory level spectroscopic performance.
  • Configurable excitation laser wavelengths and spectral resolution to maximize performance for particular materials.
  • Free-space optical coupling eliminates fiber optic losses to maximize sensitivity.
  • Lasers shareable and exchangeable with Thermo Scientific™ DXR™2 Raman Microscope products.
  • Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ software, data, and spectral library compatibility with DXR2 Raman products.

iXR for Product Development and Engineering

Establish the link between the structural and physical performance. Raman reveals not only chemical composition; its ability to reveal sample matrix morphology allows it to measure phase transition at a molecular level. By simultaneously measuring the Raman spectrum and mechanical, thermal, or other physical properties, strong cause and effect relationships can be established.

Couple the iXR Raman spectrometer with:

  • Rheology
  • Hot Melt Extrusion
  • Lab and manufacturing scale processing equipment

Improve understanding of polymers, pharmaceuticals, personal products.

Spectrometer is certified as a Class 3B laser product requiring laser safety precautions and laser safety eyewear.

Laser is physically blocked from visual viewing path to prevent exposure to the eyes while viewing.

Ideal for:

  • Nanotechnology
  • Materials science research
  • Academic research
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Geology
  • Life Science/Bio-materials
  • Polymers
  • Automotive/Aero 
  • Cosmetics
